I have a round-about interest in your query. I live in Maine, but grew up in
Brooklyn, NY. My sister presently lives on Staten Island. I'm researching
my mother's family: her paternal name is O'CONNOR and her maternal name is
QUINN. The O'CONNORs lived in and around NYC from at least the 1880's onward.
My mother, for a time, lived on Staten Island as a child. Her family moved
about 23 times!
I'd like to compare O'CONNOR notes if nothing else. I have Patrick O'Connor
as the immigrant from Ireland (I think!) in early 1800's. Then comes Joseph
O'Connor, born probably around 1850. Then there's Francis X. O'Connor born
in 1880. Anne O'Connor was born in 1910.
